What’s your favourite product and why?
Tomatoes! Our family doesn’t eat tomatoes out-of-season, so when these sweet beauties are around we really savour them. Greek salad, tomato sandwich lunches and just mowing down a couple yellow romas for a snack. A huge priority for us is the flavour of our vegetables, and we feel like we have the varieties of tomatoes that we grow pretty dialed-in, as we are in our 14th season of growing. I, Cara, first found out what a tomato could taste like when I was getting to know Andy (my husband). His Dad grew some tasty big beef tomatoes in his big backyard garden. Over the years we’ve paid close attention to which varieties not only grow well in our climate (soil-grown in our unheated greenhouse) but to those who have a depth of flavour.
Thanks, Cara! We appreciate you joining us this season!
